Welcome to WWE Monday Night RAW. There is a recap video of last weekâ€™s episode of RAW. Dean Ambrose walks to the ring to open RAW. Ambrose welcomes everyone to the Ambrose Asylum and tells a joke about Braun Strowman. He brings out Shane McMahon and McMahon walks out to a good pop. Ambrose showed the clip of McMahon jumping off the HIAC structure at WrestleMania 32. Ambrose asked him what his goals were in WWE. McMahon said that his goals were for the fans because they deserve better. He brought up AJ Styles and Sami Zayn. This leads to Kevin Owens walking out. Owens believes McMahon has it in for him and is against him. McMahon said that the only reason he had Owens removed last week was because he was going to attack Zayn last week. Owens said that Zayn doesnâ€™t deserve to be around the WWE Title. This led to Zayn walking down to the ring.
